Yesterday’s efforts

A bit late on posting this, however yesterday did see the 26 rails fastened down and mostly tamped – until the excavator blew a hydraulic hose!

Trevor and Neville drilling a sleeper while the gauger holds it in place.

A pic from the truck mid morning showing the works completed, behind the truck the gang are drilling and spiking.

Here can be seen spikes awaiting driving in, the truck visible in the distance carries a spike driver for this purpose.

A view from the excavator showing a section of the work that was tamped, the rest to follow hopefully Monday or Tuesday after a replacement hose is fitted.

We expect one more week will see this curve completely re-railed, with this in the pipeline for not long after Easter.
